    I have been working at Regis Corporation part-time

    Pros

    Plenty of learning tools to build and grow your business, and skill level. Flexible schedules. Plenty of walk-in traffic.

    Cons

    The demands are high. You're not just working behind the chair. You're filling out goal sheets and recording data and making art projects for the back room. There is a lot involved.

    Advice to Management

    I feel that management is not just a position in a company or corporation. It is a way of being. Living and being our HAIR values. I wish I could experience upper management living and being and teaching and fostering our HAIR values in our salons. It all begins and ends with the leaders.

    I have been working at Regis Corporation full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Fully stocked kitchen at all times free to employees
    Endless sick time, which is not taken from PTO

    Cons

    Layoffs. CEO. Lack of education and support. No merit increase for 2 years and counting, for the entire company. they will throw you into a role that needs to be filled, with zero training or support to ensure you can do said job. They will call it lateral so they do not have to pay you more. Employees quitting left and right. The size of the company is not 1K+, it is probably 350 at this point in time. You will never grow in this company and you will never make what you are worth.

    Advice to Management

    The management has no control over these issues. The problem is the CEO.

    Lots of walk in clientele, lots of variety to build repeat customers. Videos were supplied for additional on trend hair techniques.

    Management treats you as number. Had 3 salon managers in 1 year.

    Hire and train to keep loyal stylists.

    I worked at Regis Corporation full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I met the greatest stylists working for Regis. They are very under appreciated.
    I made more in tips a week than I did on my paycheck.
    Benefits were nice.

    Cons

    Regis only cares if you sell product. You could bring in a lot of business because you’re a great hair stylist, but at the end of the week...if you didn’t sell enough, you weren’t good enough. No room for growth. You make out better doing PT.

    Advice to Management

    We went to school to do hair and make customers feel good about themselves. We didn’t become hairdressers so we could be salesmen. We paid a lot of money for our education, and we aren’t valued as professionals unless we sell sell sell. Combo expectations should not be so high. And what’s with the computer system?! It’s awful! System never works properly, and the whole business depends on it to run smoothly.
